Can I mush up some veggies for my 6 month old to eat?

She's almost 6 months, and I know she needs to start eating veggie mush. Green veggies first, then the orange ones, then fruit, and introduce one new food each week...

But I was wondering, could I just mush up veggies to feed her? If I do, how would I? Stick it in a blender? Add any water?

  • Definalty home made baby food is better then the jars. I always used the food prcessor. You can add water if you like but I have found most vegies once cooked have enough liquid in them.

  • Yes, you can actually buy baby food makers that moosh up the food perfectly for little ones.........and you can save money and make whatever combinations you want (after you know what she likes and is not allergic to)

  • Steam, and mush with a fork, or food processor. It's a good time to introduce, but if she's not interested, it's ok. You can always try again in a few weeks.

  • SOme you can mush with a fork, some it's easier with a blender or good foor processor. I always add formula for added vitamins if more liquid is needed. GL

    Making all the baby food sounds more daunting than it really is.
